      Hi! I am ALK positive stage 2b nsclc. I had my right upper lobe removed in July and started chemo last month. I am currently not on any oral meds. I am so happy to find you though. This ALK diagnosis has left me in the dark. Have you been able to find out a lot of info pertaining to this disease? My oncologist is sending me for an MRI Friday to rule out brain mets. Did you go through anything similar? Any info would be appreciated! God bless you!
